AbstractThis map and the related geodatabase illustrate the bedrock geology of the Sverdrup Islands including Brock, Borden, and Mackenzie King islands, Lougheed Island, the northern part of Prince Patrick Island, and a small portion of Ellef Ringnes Island. Major features of the area include little-deformed Triassic and younger strata of the western Sverdrup Basin, and unconformable cover of unconsolidated post-tectonic Neogene sediments.
